The Mall - Mid-Valley Southkey: How to get to JB Newest Shopping Mall

More shopping malls are opening in Johor Bahru with The Mall, Mid-Valley Southkey being the newest and largest to join in the competition. Last month we checked out R&F Mall and were disappointed as about 90% of the retail space is still empty. Thankfully, Mid-Valley Southkey has about than 60-70% of the shop space operating and we actually spent the entire morning exploring the shopping mall even though 3rd and 3rd floor Mezzanine are still under renovation works. Based on the looks of it, it seems we do not need to wait too long before the top floors are open.

Check out our video for a sneak peek into The Mall, Mid-Valley Southkey to see what you can expect before making your way down. 

I must say Mid-Valley Southkey is one of the better managed malls in Johor Bahru. Despite being the newest mall in town, the area is clean and organised. Ample parking space (~5000 parking bays), classy interior design, and you can basically find all the familiar shop names HERE! Here are some for your reference

Though Mid-Valley Southkey Johor Bahru may not be comparable (in terms of size and brand variety ) to Kuala Lumpur Mid-Valley, this is still one of the biggest integrated mall in JB that is close to CIQ that will satisfy all our shopping, dining, entertainment and leisure needs!


By Car
We drove in from Singapore following the GPS (1.500802,103.777987) which is about 20 minutes ride from JB CIQ. There are many parking entries and you can refer to the map below for reference.

Alternatively, you can also call a GRAB to take you to The Mall which may cost about RM8-10 from CIQ
